It's a marshmallow world...

We had a marshmallow day yesterday.  We had some snow in the morning and then we had marshmallow treats that we made.  We celebrated a birthday, (Mr. Jones) and my daughter brought him some of his favorite treats.  These marshmallow snowmen were for the kids but I thought they were so cute and they were loved by all who ate them!

Cute huh!
She then made these cupcakes, yes they are cupcakes not little cherry pies. The cherries are red M&M's and the lattice is frosting.

Aren't they adorable! Then she brought pineapples upside down cake, pumpkin bars, and gingerbread cake as well.  It was sugar overload! but it was all delicious.


I told you they were well loved, I had to hurry and snap the picture before they were all gone.

We then made some marshmallow stirring sticks for our neighbors and friends. You start with a marshmallow and dip it in chocolate and then roll it in crushed candy canes.

or if you want crushed toffee bits you can roll it in that!

Put them on a lined cookie sheet pan.
Dip your sucker stick in chocolate and stick it in the marshmallow.

They are all at attention!


Wrap them up. Don't they look delicious!



I made a little tag for them.

Love it when they are all done/
Then I mixed up some hot cocoa mix and put it into containers, to go with the cocoa stirrers. 

Put the directions on the jar.

and now I have my neighbor and friend gifts done. (I hope none of them are reading this.)
They were super fast to make and they are delicious when you stir your hot cocoa with them!

This is a sneak peak of my holiday decorating to come.
Have a great week!
